Our fall art retreat allows you to refresh and recharge with art / creativity sessions led by two professional artists.

Enjoy glorious surroundings and local flavors of Palisade and nearby Grand Junction, Colorado. Retreat registration includes upscale accommodations for 4 nights, all meals, wine tastings, art supplies and instruction. Our agenda allows time to create and experiment with new techniques as well as unstructured time to unwind.

The Grand Mesa (the world’s largest flat-top mountain) is the backdrop for morning and afternoon art sessions.


Try watercolor and acrylic/mixed media painting inspired by the mountains and Colorado's wine country –– did we mention Palisade features more than 30 wineries? An outing to the Colorado National Monument will lend inspiration with its wildlife and vegetation.

All experience levels are welcome!


Don't need overnight accommodations? Look for our 'non-Lodging' retreat ticket, which includes the multi-day immersive retreat, art, meals, and outings.

Take in the Palisade landscape not as a tourist but through an artist's eyes. Book now and get ready for fun, friendship, new experiences and terrific memories! All experience levels welcome.

Schedule an Art Journaling Session


Art journaling is a method that combines writing with doodling, painting and mark making. It’s a wonderful way to express your emotions. It can also be a technique for combating anxiety and managing stress. This workshop is perfect for teens and adults. Gather your friends and book a session to learn all the benefits of keeping an art journal.

Customer feedback:

"Journaling with Jennifer was a different experience.  It was fun, enlightening, and encouraging.  With her guidance, I leaped into it with arms wide open and surprised myself. I'd have never been able to accomplish what I did on my own.  A single workshop opened up possibilities.  I think I may have found a new adventure."   ––Zee L.
